marsh photo_0005This photograph is included in the cabinet card gallery more for the photographers name than for any particular merit of the image. The photographer of this cabinet card is C. Burr Marsh and he and I share the same last name. As a result, I’ve adopted him as a ancestor and include his work in the Cabinet Card Gallery. You can see more of his photographs and learn more about him by clicking on the category “Photographer: Marsh”. The reverse of this photograph indicates that it was 1888 when Marsh photographed this couple in his Fayette, Ohio studio. This image is features a lovely young couple sitting at a table that is topped with two books laying side by side. The table cloth in this photograph is interesting and unique. I do not recall seeing a similar patterned table cloth on other cabinet cards. Perhaps a visitor to this site can give us better understanding of this type of tablecloth.

  1. I collect cabinet cards too, and I think that is indeed a rare tablecloth.
